Key Lime Tart
"Nothing else says summer to me, more than having sweets outside on my terrace with a cup of coffee in the afternoon. Either a piece of cake, a slice of pie or my favorite, a piece of key lime tart! I love anything citrus! Sadly this winter my key lime tree did not produce any fruit, maybe it was the lack of light or maybe after 2 years of rewarding me with a lot of fruit, it needed a little rest. Last summer I shared with you a key lime cake recipe that was made with the key limes that I had grown indoors."
